Ben Newman talks about Regenerator, AST, and pushing ES6 features into your apps

Ben Newman of Facebook has spent many a man-month creating https://github.com/facebook/regenerator which brings support for ES6 style generators to your code today. Ben will talk about what led him to create Regenerator, show us what it can do today, and expand on where it's going in the future.

    Excellent talk, specially liked the motivation part about how not to get discouraged when the journey is so long.

    BTW, What framework / app is this presentation built with ? Super cool

      I think that's reveal.js.

    Thanks again to Pivotal and to everyone for coming. And, thanks to Ben Newman for the fantastic presentation of just how powerful JavaScript and dynamic languages can be! Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for the announcement for next month's meetup over streams, godot, realtime apps, and WebRTC!

    Very cool tool. The possibilities beyond just language transformation are endless. Also liked the side projects advice. A lot of the advice goes against your instinct but is absolutely on the money!

    I have been exposed to generators from having learned them through python. That's fantastic news ;)
